Gluten Free Onion Butter PretzelsThese pretzels are my food crack.  I am totally addicted to them and might even have eaten them for breakfast.  Luckily, gluten free pretzels are ridiculously expensive, so I only buy and make these once a year as a treat.   For you who eat the totally affordable regular pretzels, the stretchy pants manufacturers are waiting.  I dare you to resist the buttery goodness of these babies.

Gluten Free Onion Pretzels #AppetizerWeek
  • 1 11-16 oz bag gluten free small stick pretzels (I like Snyder's of Hanovers)
  • 1 Tbsp granulated beef bouillon powder (Herb Ox is gluten free)
  • 1 Tbsp dried minced onion
  • 1 Tbsp onion powder
  • ⅛ tsp celery salt
  • ¼ tsp sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  1. Place pretzels in a very big mixing bowl.
  2. Put butter in a glass bowl and melt in the microwave (probably 1 minute should do it)
  3. Stir remaining ingredients into butter.
  4. Pour butter mixture over pretzels and toss to coat.
  5. Place pretzels on a large, rimmed baking sheet.
  6. Scrape out bowl with a spatula and pour it all over the pretzels.
  7. Bake at 250 degrees for 1½ hours, stirring the pretzels every 20 minutes.
  8. When done, cool completely and then store in an airtight container.
You can use 1 envelope onion soup mix in place of bouillon, onions, onion powder, celery salt and sugar if you are not eating gluten free.
